INTENSE” – poetry workshop with Les Wicks-

Solid block of hours, writing strategies plus substantial prior editorial work.

This project will consist of three components.

Everyone gets in advance a strategy sheet on editing their work. Then, participants will send four poems (maximum 30 lines each) to at least 14 days prior to the workshop. The poems with commentary will be distributed to the participants four days prior to their workshop. Participants should bring a copy of the entire commentary document to the workshop.

On the day of the workshop we will work intensively through each participant’s poems building on prior suggestions and experiencing a dynamic interplay of ideas/insights. 

Should they so wish, participants will have a chance to have a piece published in the e-mag Australian Poetry Collaboration, which is widely read and archived by the National Library’s Pandora.
